    want to finally understand why i would reach over one EQ over another EQ

    and why i would reach for a compressor over another compressor


    can you please provide me with

    3 EQs that with the same exact cut give different sound

    also 3 compressors that with the same settings give different sound

    Thank you

    For EQs:

    Whats Wrong With Stock Plugins? ReaEQ vs Pro Q3

    Probably because some people ask themselves the same question as OP:
    Why 2 EQ with exact same parameters are different?

    How about shelfs being calculated at different points? 5 db on some is 10 on others.
